Ignition & Starting Systems Repair

Your car’s ignition system doesn’t just affect its ability to start, it affects gas mileage and performance too. Therefore, it’s important to have a certified technician inspect it regularly. Whether it’s a coil, distributor, rotor, or plug, the experts at Virginia Tire & Auto know what to look for—and know how to provide ignition repair so your car turns on, every time.

What Does My Ignition System Do?

Without the ignition system, your car won’t start! The components of this system complete a circuit between the battery and the engine. When you turn your key in the ignition switch, it allows voltage from your battery to travel to the spark plugs inside your engine. This is the trigger required to allow the engine to fire up and send you on your way.

How Do I Know if My Ignition System Requires Service?

If you are having difficulty starting your car, notice that the engine stutters or that the car stalls while you are driving, you may have an ignition system issue. Our ASE-certified technicians can inspect your ignition system thoroughly and provide the service required to get all components working seamlessly together again.
